We travelled as a family for three weeks, our tow teenagers and ourselves. Jean-Claude was fantastic - always willing to adjust, worked hard to give us the best possible experience. He has a great laugh! There was a situation while we we there as some instability in one region, Jean-Claude was upfront about this, presented us with alternatives and helped us navigate the risk. Exactly what you would want from a guide. Madagascar is a fantastic place to visit and we would highly recommend Jean-Claude.
